I believe there was a John Koches in my family. He contacted my brother, Paul Koches, Esq. when he needed some legal advice. John was in Florida at the time. This was about 15 years ago. My father, Andrew Koches, was born in Luzerne,Pennsylvania in 1929. My mother's maiden name was Dorothy Ciringione. My parents were married in 1949 in New York. My paternal grandfather's name was also Andrew Koches and he married Ann Ripko. They lived in Bellmore on Long Island, N.Y. I remember my father saying that his dad was of Hungarian descent. I also have another brother, Brian Koches.
